Synopsis

Wait for Me

Executive assistant Emma Taylor is desperate for a little time away; away from her job, her life and from thoughts of her boss’s son who doesn’t seem to know she even exists. Tired of waiting for the time to be right, she takes advantage of her boss’s generous offer for a little weekend getaway to thank her for helping out with a difficult business deal.

Former NFL superstar Lucas Montgomery is still suffering from a career-ending injury. His self-imposed exile from life is exactly what he wants; a sanctuary where there’s no chance for disappointment or distractions and that’s exactly the way he likes it. While his family has been patiently waiting for Lucas to come around and embrace life once again, they don’t realize that it wasn’t just his career that was lost, but his sense of identity.

Lucas thought everything was fine until sweet, sexy and completely off-limits Emma Taylor comes crashing into his carefully constructed world one snowy weekend and turns his entire life upside down.

Trust in Me
All work and no play…

…would make Jason Montgomery a very happy man. Ever since his brother had married a woman who worked for their company, Jason has been walking around fending off the unwanted advances of all of the single women in his employ. Now, with a make or break business expansion in the works, the last thing he needs is a hands-on assistant who wants to get her hands on him!

For three years Maggie Barrett has happily hid in the shadows of Montgomery’s. After dealing with her own unwanted advances from her previous employer, staying under the radar was working just fine for her. But now she’s thrown into the spotlight as Jason’s assistant because he believes her to be a safe choice because she’s married.

The only problem?

She’s not.

Working in close proximity wasn’t supposed to be an issue. The lines of their relationship were clearly defined. But when a mutual respect turns into a mutual attraction how will Maggie explain that the only thing holding Jason back was just a little white lie?

 

Review

I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

I think the stories in this book were cute. Let me start with Lucas. In another genre, he’d remind me of a certain favorite hero named Logan who was always brooding and carried on like he had nothing bright to look forward to. However, Logan was into the erotic romance and BDSM. This first book’s hero, Lucas, belongs in the contemporary romance genre, the clean one.

I liked Lucas and Emma together because even if Lucas let out a vibe that may have intimidated a lot of people, Emma was the one person who wasn’t afraid to fight through the armor. She was also sweet and easy to like. Lucas may have been somewhat of a challenge, but he was still a great hero who may have stumbled but has more than made up for it.

In the second book, the heroine was very likable because she was able to rise above what happened with her previous boss. Jason Montgomery wasn’t really a stand cccout. I mean, Lucas had his NFL. Mac was eldest and next in line. However, I didn’t get anything else going on with Jason aside from the fact that he was a busy man and he was very easy to fall in love with. I wish there was more written about his character, like his interest, hobbies, etc.

Still, these first two stories in the series are the reason why I keep a close watch on the upcoming books. It’s because of Lucas and Jason and their enigmatic father, William, that I am not a fan of the entire clan. I look forward to more books and more Montgomerys in the future.
